    I have new helm seats. Was wondering the best way to get them up to the flybridge. They won't go through the ladder cutout so have to go over the back flybridge rail. They are a bit awkward to climb up a ladder with.

    What has worked for you?

    Thanks - Greg

    Well, they won't fit, they won't fix.
    Spray paint what you have and mail those to me.

    Going to take two (or more) folks to safely do this;
    One below to guide as far as they can reach, then go to the bridge to help the other guy with the lifting line.

    I used a line to hoist them hand over hand up from the cockpit.

    A rope was what I was thinking, I've used it to get a radar up/down from the hardtop before.

    Thanks

    Exactly right, that's what I (we) did.

    It was a bit of a struggle but I just put three high back reclining seats from Taylor made to replace the bench seating on the bridge of the 506. The weighed in at about 65lbs with out the pedestals. No bridge ladder to navigate but two flights of stairs and very narrow doors though. It was worth it. IMG_3915.jpg

    Look good. Mine are much lighter, I can carry one with one hand. The pedistals are being reused.

    Thanks
